Academy Jobs & Careers


Program Description

The purpose of this program is to assemble a list of available employment positions, on both sides of the border, at companies owned by CFL Alumni (or supporters of the CFL) or where CFL Alumni (or supporters of the CFL) are in a position to hire. As you already know, many families of current players are experiencing increasing financial stress due to the cancellation of the 2020 season and their income.

 How does the program work?

 If you have a position that may be a good fit for a current player then all you need to do is send us a job description and contact info. The Academy will then post the position on our Academy job board, and collect and review applications to ensure only applications meeting your stated requirements are forwarded to you. From there all the program asks is any applications you receive from the players get fair consideration. The rest is up to you.

The benefits to your company?

You will potentially have access to over 600 highly competitive and results oriented individuals looking at your posting. Our players have been sought after by companies such as PepsiCo, Manulife Financial, TD Bank and many others because of the skills they bring.

If you are interested in providing an opportunity to a player in these very challenging times, or just have questions about the program, feel free to contact Scott or Jason at [email protected]
